Praxair Breaks Ground in Memphis - 8/9/2012
To support the current and projected industrial growth in the U.S. Southeast region, Praxair, Inc. broke ground on its new air separation unit in Memphis, TN. With a capacity of 600 tons per day, the new plant is scheduled to start up in the second quarter 2013.
Praxair currently operates three air separation units in the Memphis area which supply a number of customers including Nucor Corporation, Valero Energy Corporation and a growing number of liquid-product customers. Praxair recently started up a plant and commissioned a pipeline capable of serving multiple customers in the Riverport area.
“Praxair’s new plant will further strengthen Praxair’s supply position in the greater Southeast region, allowing us to meet future demand from companies attracted to the area’s business-friendly environment,” says Kevin Foti, East Region vice president for Praxair’s U.S. industrial gases business.
